A safer but more difficult alternative to the Grands Mulets route up Mont Blanc. Highly recommended by the hut guardian and OHM.

From the Grands Mullets hut cross the glacier to climb the north ridge of the Dome du Gouter (snow and ice). Traverse beneath the summit of the Dome du Gouter and join the Gouter route at the Col du Dome.

This avoids the seracs above the Petit Plateau on the normal Grands Mulets route. If skiing it is usual to descend the normal Grand Mulets route to return to the hut from the summit, but don't hang about!
